IMPACT Brussels office was launched in October 2009. The National Foundation, the IMPACT – European Center for Cross-Sector Partnerships and the European non-governmental organization European Citizen Action Service (ECAS), initiated the opening of the IMPACT office in Brussels to promote and support linking the CSOs from the South east Europe with the EU organizations and to develop cross-sector partnerships. The office will work towards building links between the civil society in the region and EU organizations, promoting dialogue with the EU institutions, influencing the recognition of interests of regional CSOs in the EU, increasing the regional CSOs interest in the EU and developing the new models and promoting the exchange of good practices in cross-sector cooperation.
This will also help the National Foundation for Civil Society Development to achieve its key objectives, and to create the conditions that are the prerequisite for the development of active citizenship, networking and cross-sector cooperation development in Croatia and the countries of the region. The Office will work towards connecting and promoting the dialogue between regional CSOs and EU organizations.
